Avionics Theft Alert  :  There has been a series of avionics thefts in North Carolina in March at numerous airports. They have occurred after normal working hours in aircraft parked in unsecured areas (not a locked hangar). These thieves are knowledgeable of aircraft systems and are removing King and Garmin series avionics without damaging the aircraft - in most cases. Please be on the lookout for suspisous activity. A complete stack of radios can be removed in less than two minutes. Check your aircraft to determine if any equipment is missing. Report any thefts or suspious activity to your local sherriff and the NCDOT at 919 840 5299. Ask for Steve Merrit or Tom Freeman. A good vigilence is a strong deterent.
